Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court grants one transfer this week
The transfer list will follow later today, but here is the case granted transfer by the Supreme Court this week. Recall that there was no conference last week.
Thabit Gault v. State of Indiana 27A02-0603-CR-224 - This is the Feb. 23, 2007 Court of Appeals opinion where Judge Vaidik's "concur in result in issue II" included the following:
This leads me to my greatest concern with the lead opinion. The majority uses this case as a springboard to comment, in dicta, on the work product privilege as it pertains to police reports. I do not share the conviction of my colleagues on this issue. First, I do not see this as a pervasive problem that needs fixing. Second, to the extent that it is a problem, we should deal with it in cases where the issue is squarely presented to us. For these reasons, I concur in result as to issue II.
